this historic period of transition in your -- in libya. we understand why christopher stevens went to libya, his passion for the country and his mission. he believes no talent is too big our too hard in our national security or value is at stake. that is what is in stake at the best at stake in libya. we will do our best to answer your -- that is what is at stake in libya. we will do our best to answer your questions. there may be information that is classified and can only be dealt with in classified sessions. as secretary clinton has said. the american people expect that the family who lost loved ones -- families who lost loved ones deserve an accurate accounting. we lost friends and colleagues, a cross section of those who put their lives on the line every day. in the inherently dangerous work of diplomatic service to our nation. the secretary has already appointed a review board and is working to determine if our security systems and procedures where appropriate in light of the threat environment and whether they were properly implemented. the secretary has asked us to work as quickly and tr
to the 9/11 attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. this is just over four hours. >> the committee will come to order. would you please take your seats? perhaps most appropriately today and the oversight committee mission statement reads "we exist to secure two fundamental principles. first, that americans have a right to know that the money washington takes from them is well spent. second, americans deserve an efficient, effective government that works for them. our duty on the oversight and government reform committee is to protect these rights. solemn responsibility is to hold government accountable to taxpayers, because taxpayers have a right to know what they get from their government. so it's our job to work tirelessly in partnership with citizen watchdogs, delivered the facts to the american people, and bring genuine reform to the federal bureaucracy." this is the mission of the government oversight and reform committee. on september 11, 2012, careful you are brave americans serving their country were murdered by terr
. they found another window grill open. this is the window that special agent opened and crawls out of. stevens and smith did not crawl after him. even though he can barely see and barely breathe he goes back in, goes back in several times. he can't find them. he is overcome with smoke. >> he struggles up a small ladder to the roof of the building and collapses and radios the other agents. another a little emerges from the a tactical operation center and moves to the small agent and get them out. they get into a armored vehicle and drive to a short distance to the residence. they crawl into the residence on their hands and knees feeling their way through the building to try to find their two colleagues. they find smith. they pull him out of the building. these is dead. now, remember, the crack site security team is gone but there is small unit of security a mile away. six americans and 16 from the militia arrive. they surround the compound but they are unable to find stevens and libyan forces say they can't hold the perimeter. the agents carry the body and exit the main gate. they head for the
in the u.s. air force. he leaves behind a widow and two young children. ambassador chris stevens, a man i had known personally during his tours, u.s. ambassador to libya, ventured into a volatile and dangerous situation as libyans revolted against the longtime khaddafi regime. he did so because he believed the people of libya wanted and deserved the same things we have, freedom from tyranny. we join here today expressing from this side of the desk our deepest sympathy for the loss of life of the families in libya. additionally, other americans were injured in this terrorist attack. some suffering very serious injuries. i spoke to the father of one american who is recovering in the united states military hospital. he hopefully will have a full recovery, but he has gone through supplemental surgeries that will require a long recuperation and long reconstruction. mr. davis state department began a process of coming clean about what occurred in benghazi -- yesterday the state department began the process. they issued a broad and definitive statement, headed by ambassador kennedy, and they mad
residence, the special agent comes here and gets ambassador stevens from his bedroom and brings him along with sean smith to this room in the safe haven, really aside from some medicine and other supplies, a big, dark, windowless closet. and then outside a locked gate, hoped if-for security. -- hoped-for security. megyn: that is just so sad. that was our greg talcott reporting from libya on the deadly terror attack against our consulate in benghazi, and he was detailing some of the new information from what appear to be a series of recent intelligence leaks from the obama administration. as the questions continue about al-qaeda's role in this attack, how the administration has been dealing with those questions not to mention why there wasn't more security for ambassador stevens on the ground. that was the room in which he spent what may have been some of his final moments. fox news chief intelligence correspondent has been all over this story from the beginning, catherine herridge has the very latest live in washington now. catherine? >> reporter: megyn, thank you. an interview with the h
, ambassador stevens was being visited by the turkish ambassador. and the coordinated attack lasted for hours with al qaeda-associated militia. my belief is that that was known by the administration within 24 hours. and, quite frankly, susan rice, on your show on september 16, the president on the 18th, the and the 25th, kept talkin talking about an attack inspired by a video. they're trying to sell a narrative, quite frankly, that the middle east, the wars are receding and al qaeda's been dismantled, and to admit that our embassy was attacked by al qaeda operatives and libya leading from behind didn't work. i think undercut that narrative. they never believed the media would investigate. congress was out of session, and this caught up with them. i think they have been misleading us, but it finally caught up with them. >> schieffer: well, that is a very serious charge you just leveled, senator graham. >> uh-huh. >> schieffer: are you saying the administration deliberately misled the american people to make it look as if terrorism i is-- is not as much of a threat as apparently it is? >> eithe
asked about ambassador stevens, a skilled career diplomat, and how he dealt with threats related to security. we told me that when there was a perceived threat in his running, he ceased running. when you and the colonel came up with an acceptable way to continue basin where he went, he ran again, but only under your authority and recommendation, is that correct? >> it is correct, chairman. >> did he do what you thought when you recommended it? did he change it at any time based on what you thought was best for his security? >> at no time or any concerns raised to me by ambassador stevens. the colonel, a senior member of the team, there were general concerns there might be over his schedule. one of wall received this morning was posted to facebook, we came across that threat as a result. senator mccain came out to post to review the elections, in early july. my point is that he was absolutely responsive when he referred to our concerns. >> thank you. yesterday you told us in testimony that you received from mr. nordstrom a recommendation, but not a request for more security. you a
chris stevens asking for more security -- >> the republicans voted against the additional security. look, i think there is only the president has been taking this seriously. have you republicans who did a document dump, putting lives at risk. i think the american people are going to watch the debate and say, which candidate has a thoughtful, serious approach to really difficult foreign policy questions, which one is saying whatever he's for, i'm against. i am for this, but not later on. i am going to flip flop on a variety of issues and on some issues, i don't have a difference but i am going to say i'm against him because it's a political campaign. >> eric: marjorie said, quote, only the president is sake taking this seriously. do you buy that? >> mitt romney is also taking this seriously. it is not playing politics to hole the president and the state department accountable for the conduct of foreign policy. it is not playing politics to hold the president and the state department responsible for a lack of security, when security was requested for ambassador stevens and we have the firs
the attack and we now know u.s. embassador chris stevens sent repeated memos to washington, even on the day he was killed, asking for more security. senator graham, is it conceivable that president obama didn't know how dangerous benghazi was for americans? >> no. no administration's going to send the president of the united states into the public arena not telling him about an attack in april and june. what if the president were asked by a reporter in june, tell me about the consulate in attack in benghazi, he said i don't know. i find that inconceivable. this is going to be a case study, studied for years of a breakdown of national security at every level. failed presidential leadership. the benghazi-lib libya license consulate was a death trap. we asked additional security and was denied because we wanted to normalize relationships with a nonexistent government. we should have closed that consulate long before september 11 or heavily reinforced it and i put that on the president of the united states. this was a national security break down before, during and after the attack. >> senator
to the killing of the great ambassador like ambassador chris stevens. >> look, libya is an important example. after the tragedy of september 11th, you saw tens and thousands of libyans marching in the street in honor of chris stevens. they valued his offer in engaging in the world and democracy, particularly for young democracy is more than just going to the ballot box. that's the very first requirement. we have to set up a simple structure, a court system. >> how does the american administration get the kind of information that chris and others are asking for in relation to a tragedy like this when the government is basically not formed. it's formulating before our very eyes? >> we have to help it. we have to set up structures. we have to help them set up an intelligence gathering system. there's a whole structure of civil society. >> and don't you think, though, if i may be and we were not literally enough in describing the conditions inside a place like benghazi. it's because we weren't clear enough in terms of the problems that occurred in the nation that is uprising, that is literally r
justice john paul stevens this afternoon delivering a speech regarding the second amendment and gun laws. the brady center to prevent gun violence is hosting the event today. during his time on the court, justice stevens authored dissents in the 2006 and 2008 decisions on the second amendment. he served from 1975 to 2010. that makes him the third longest-serving supreme court justice. we expect this to start any moment. this is live coverage on c-span c-span3. c-span2. [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> we to want to let everybody know there was a mass shooting at -- [inaudible] [inaudible conversations] a gunman acting -- >> that's when i realized that this is not part -- gunmen are shooting everywhere. >> we go out, and the first thing we see is a 13, 14-year-old with bullets in her leg and her stomach and probably her -- [inaudible conversations] ♪ >> we do want to let everybody know at home there's been a mass shooting at a movie theater just outside denver, colorado, in aurora. a gunman acting alone opening fire -- >> that's when i rea
, in the six months before the attack and we now know that u.s. ambassador chris stevens sent repeated memos to washington, even on the day he was killed, asking for more security. senator graham, is it conceivable that president obama didn't know how dangerous benghazi was, for americans? >> no. no administration will send the president of the united states out into the public arena, not telling him about an attack in april and june, and, tell me about the consulate attack in benghazi, what do you think about it, and the president said i don't know and i find that inconceivable. and this is going to be a case study, studied for years of a break down of national security, and, failed presidential leadership and senior members of the obama administration, failed miserably and the benghazi, libya conflict was becoming a death trap and the british left and the red cross left, because of the deteriorating security environment and we were requesting additional security and it was denied because we wanted to normalize relationships with a nonexistent government and we should have closed the consul
by steven dennis, who covers the white house for roll call newspaper and josh rogin, a staff writer with foreign policy magazine and the author of the cable blog. how did we get to this path? the president said it was really congress that did this and some people said no the white house had a role. how did we get to this. >> a lot of folks were shaking their heads wondering what he was saying because the reality is the president was involved. he helped craft this deal. this sequestration is really a symptom of washington's failure to get a budget deal. for 18 months the two sides have been squaring off and the the democrats are off in their corner saying we need to raise taxes on the wealthy. the republicans are saying we have to have a cuts-only plan. when they cut this deal a year-and-a-half ago, it was designed to bring the two parties together, to make it so onerous that both sides had to come... >> ifill: nobody thought it would ever be real. >> yeah. i think that basically the idea was the super committee was going to take a crack at coming up with an alternative. they failed.
details what happened that night. at 8:30, ambassador chris stevens went outside the compound to say good night to a visiting turkish diplomat. the streets were empty. but at 9:40 p.m., security agents in the operations center of the compound heard explosions and saw a large group of armed men entering the compound. stevens, sean smith and one security agent locked themselves in the safe area. they saw attackers hunting for them. pouring diesel and, setting the house on fire. the three americans went to a bathroom area where they tried to open a small window for air. but it was not enough. on the ground suffering from severe smoke inhalation they decided to flee. stevens and smith never made it out alive. diane sawyer asked the president about the white house's initial claims that the incident began with a protest against that anti-muslim video. >> as information came in, information was put out. the information may not have always been right the first time. look, look, diane, these are people i know. and if there is something to be fixed, it will get fixed. >> reporter: the commander of
internet video. >>> outrage over the video. >> ambassador chris fer stevens worried about al-qaida and asking for more security before the attack that killed him . those thippings that i need for every day living are expensive. what kind of impact will inflation have on the election. joe at it again. >>> how many do you know who served in iraq or iran. another biden blunder. ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [ applause ] >>> thank you. thank you. we have got a great enthusiastic audience here. so happy to have them and you. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york maybelet most interesting moment in last week's presidential debate when the president claimed he labeled the attack on benghazi in the rose garden comment. mitt romney rightly challenged the thing and whip sawed by moderator candy crowley who rushed to offer asylum to president obama and saying that he had indeed labeled the benghazi atact as the result of terrorism . he mentioned acts of terror. but he did not attribute the assault in libya to such a thing. >>> no acts of terror will s
of insensitivity. >> brown: pastor stevens also had a greater concern about missed opportunities. >> this shouldn't be an election about voting against the other guy. this should be an election about voting for the person who is is going to benefit your community. >> brown: you're not seeing that from either party? >> neither party. neither party >> brown: the two parties intending to stir enthusiasm in the weeks before the vote, that might well be a sobering message indeed. >> ifill: you can find more on jeff's trip to north >> ifill: you can find more on jeff's trip to north carolina, including his foray into mixed martial arts on our web site. watch his newsroom conversation with political editor christina bellantoni, plus a behind-the- scenes slideshow, on our politics page. >> woodruff: the newshour and npr are tracking how the presidential campaigns are spending their ad dollars to target specific demographic groups in battlegrounds like north carolina, our partner kantar media/cmag found that president obama and mitt romney have spent eight times more money this year on spanish- language a
investigation in to that attack in libya and ambassador stevens killed and three other americans and someone that worked in the state department and knew the ambassador, do you think that the administration dropped the ball? >> the speech today is certainly going to highlight this but the administration is not dropping the ball. they have been coming out with information as they have learned it about the libya attacks and the danger today is con inflation of rhetoric and attacks could paint governor romney in to a position of scare mong mongering. this is a person in 2007 saying he would not go after bin laden if he had actionable intelligence and president obama got bin laden. the lynn yann incident is dangerous and the state department has to take care of the future in terms of its ambassador's safety and security and looking in to it. but to politicize it in such a way and platform could be undermining to that process. >> one area of concern is syria. ambassador ginsburg, i want your take on what governor romney is expected to say, specifically saying in syria, i'll work with the partners
to libya, christopher stevens. we know who he is. we know where he is, who's got him and whether american interrogators will be able to get at him. in addition tonight, we've got new insight into just how quickly the state department knew about the military sophistication of the actual assault. frank townsend will join us shortly. along with former cia officer bob baer. and you'll hear as well from senator john mccain. i want to start with the suspect and a "360" exclusive. earlier reporting said access to the suspect was being blocked. intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly has learned otherwise. she joins us now. what have you heard? >> right, anderson. what we're hearing from a u.s. government official that the u.s. does fully intend and expect to get access to this individual. there's a little bit of negotiating going on. there's a process in place. the fbi is expected to take the lead on this negotiation, though intelligence officials are also expected to be in the room when he's questioned. >> so it's not clear -- so fbi will take the lead on interrogation or interviews, and cia,
, and the advertising was stevens. he is a nice guy. it has been misguided from the first day. if this is a referendum on president obama and the economy, there was a threshold level of comfort and trust that people had to have in the alternative. when the romney campaign decided to focus everything from as soon as they won the nomination on the economy without building him v upbuildingoters --, undecided voters knew nothing about mitt romney other than he was a rich businessman. they did not know if he was trustworthy. the romney campaign did not go ith testimonial ads in june to put the meat on the bone so he could reach the press hold level of comfort with voters. the obama campaign guns in. plant closings, layoffs, outsourcing, income tax returns. they take a baseball bat in beat romney's brains in in the six or seven swing states. that is why his numbers were upside down. why they did that i do not know. i have been asking that question since june. it was a huge miscalculation. the romney campaign family intervention try to introduce him -- this is what they should have done back in may or june.
